raspberry vinaegrette

This dressing is called a `vinaigrette’ but it does not have any vinegar in it.  Vinegar is not an ingredient I use as it is so acidic; I use lemon juice which is healthier and alkaline forming.

My garden is so abundant with raspberries that I am inspired to get creative in my kitchen.  After developing several recipes this is my favorite.

This is great with a salad made of romaine, arugula, raspberries, grated carrots and red onion.

Ingredients:
1 cup olive oil
1/8 cup lemon juice
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup water
12 drops Light Stevia to taste
1/8 tsp salt

vinaigrette ingredients before blending

Ingredients before blending. You can see the layer of oil and raspberries in the bullet blender.

Directions:
1.    Blend the ingredients in a blender.
2.    Pour into a salad dressing bottle or glass jar.
3.    Refrigerate; will last from 2 to 3 weeks.

Recipe Tip: Raspberries are tart even when they are very ripe; so you may find that you want to add less lemon juice.
